Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Characters
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were first introduced to the public in the mid ’80s. Kids of all ages loved these teenage crime fighters and the popularity of the characters soared.
There was a huge clamor for merchandise featuring these characters including dolls, figurines, bedding, Halloween costumes, and more. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo is the leader of these heroes.
This character is named after Leonardo da Vinci. He’s the one who tries to keep his brothers in line. As a hero, he carries a badge of honor and he likes to be the responsible one in the group.

Next in the group is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Donatello. He’s the scientist of the group, named after a sculptor by the same name – but he often goes by the nickname of Donny.
He’s a turtle of quiet strength and prefers to avoid trouble if possible, but isn’t afraid to use his skills if needed. The doll wears a purple bandana and comes with a Naginata bo staff.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael is the hero of the group who has a reputation for not always waiting to fight back. His temper can sometimes cause trouble. He was named after Raphael, an Italian painter.
This turtle is tough, loyal and has a great sense of humor. This doll wears a red bandana and carries ninja weapons. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Michelangelo is one of the more outgoing heroes of the group.
He’s named after Michelangelo and is always making jokes. His personality is less aggressive than his brother Raphael. He’s skilled in using the Kusarigama. When he uses the weapon, he always gets the upper hand.
The Shredder is an enemy of the Turtles and you can get a figure of this character with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Shredder Basic Figure. He uses his destructive armor to achieve his dark goals.
Another villain is Dr. Falco who became the Rat King. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Rat King Action Figure. The figure comes with the palm rat, long coat and staff.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Baxter Stockman Evil-Minded Mad Scientist figure is a replica of the villain from the series who teamed up with the Shredder. The figure comes wearing a battle suit featuring T-tech.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Stretch ‘N’ Shout Leonardo
Any child who fancies himself to be a teenage mutant ninja turtle will love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Stretch ‘N’ Shout Leonardo. One of the most popular and beloved of the turtles, this Leonardo shouts the war cries of the ninja turtles – and the more you stretch his half-shell’s arms – the higher the pitch of his voice.
Playmates Toys specialize in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and have used their wildest imagination to create this ninja turtle who can stretch and shout. The arms are designed to be stretched and to trigger the turtle battle cry.
Yank on the arms a bit and hear Leonardo shout, then raise the arms further and you can hear that the pitch of the voice becomes higher. When you release the arms, Leonardo will finish his word or phrase, followed by the battle cry sound.
This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle stands at thirteen-inches tall and is fully equipped with a large head, the feet and hands of a turtle, and carry their weapons (including the Dual Katana) molded into their hands.
The toy requires three, AAA batteries, which are included with the package. When you hear the word, “Cowabunga,” you’ll know that it’s “Turtle Time.” Your child can stretch Leonardo’s arms up to 8-inches and the more he stretches the higher pitched is the battle cry.
He can engage in battles with Shredder and the Foot Clan and be assured of a win with Leonardo as he shouts various phrases and becomes more intimidating with each shout.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Stretch ‘N’ Shout Leonardo is a simple toy, like other “Ninja” toys from Playmates, but it can keep your child occupied and engage his imagination like no other.
The Ninja, Raphael, is also available as a Stretch ‘N’ Shout Ninja, but comes in his classically designed suit and dons a red mask rather than a blue one like Leonardo. Get them both and let them battle the bad guys together.
The secret of Playmates success in toy manufacturing is the simplicity and good craftsmanship. They’re sturdy toys that can withstand hundreds of “battles” and rough treatment.
